I can't help I'm afraid but I hope he smiles soon for you maybe speak to your dr as the asked if Hannah was smiling at te 6 week check up.. So I imagine they must know when prem babies should start by too. Good luck xx

I'll check when I get home the date that Jacob 1st smiled, he was 5w+1 prem - it took longer than my nephew (who was 40w+6) and I remember thinking wow I wish he'd smile....

Never let anyone compare your little one to anyone else, as every baby develops at their own pace let alone a premmie x x

H was 5 weeks premature. He was smiling pretty much from the word go, but he was about 8 weeks (so 3 adjusted) before he'd properly look at us and consciously smile.

It can just take that bit longer for premature babies, you'll get there!

Aaron was about 8 weeks (4 adjusted - but he also has DS so not sure how much of a gauge that is) - 8 weeks prem is quite early, so just give him some more time

Solomon was 10 weeks (4 weeks corrected) infact most milestones seemed to take forever ha, but it's worth the wait and they will get there in the end. Can't wait till he's two and I can stop "correcting" his age x

Seb was 12 weeks (6 weeks adjusted), waiting really got me down. But he's now 20 weeks (so 14 adjusted) and the milestone delays already seem to be getting smaller. Like he may not be reaching and grabbing yet, but he babbles loads and is well on the way to sitting up. It gets easier, honest
